“We’re about exploring the possibilities of coffee and what a coffee shop should be – melding traditional and innovative brewing techniques and local artisan produce to create a new coffee shop experience.”
If you love coffee, you’ll love Brew Lab. Tucked away off Edinburgh’s Nicholson Street this deceivingly large coffee bar is often buzzing with students, designers, coffee nuts and artists getting a fix of some of the finest Coffee in town. It hosts some of Creative Edinburgh’s regular meet ups and it’s nearly impossible not to sample the locally sourced artisan produce on offer.
Inside, Brew Lab has an almost unfinished look; yet everything is carefully considered and charming. Exposed rough brickwork, salvaged gymnasium wooden flooring and mix n’ match furniture flanked by floor to ceiling windows and a gallery of long tressel tables; this is a place where you could happily natter away to other customers or just find a nook to crack on with some work on your laptop.
P.s. They allow dogs!
